Treatment of Varicose and Thread Veins

The West London Vein Clinic includes consultant vascular surgeons who specialise in vein treatments. We have a particular interest in venous problems and offer you private treatment for varicose veins, thread veins and facial veins. We are all UK accredited specialists based at NHS and private hospitals, using modern methods of diagnosis and management of vein disorders. Amongst our ranks are professors of surgery and some of the country's leading authorities on vein problems. Our modern surgical techniques produce beneficial cosmetic results. When seeking advice your General Practitioner should be the first point of contact. In many parts of the UK the NHS regards varicose veins as a minor concern and treatment is given low priority – or not offered at all. Thread veins on the face and legs are regarded as a cosmetic problem, and in general treatment is not available on the NHS.

Our specialists are recognised by private medical insurance companies for the treatment of symptomatic vein problems; if you do not have medical insurance, surgical packages are available. Cosmetic procedures are not covered by the insurance companies – these are offered at competitive rates.

Our range of services differ slightly from centre to centre depending on the specialist equipment available.


Help! All these treatments! Which is the one for me?
